A Couple of Items of InterestMarch 2, 2015
Two things you should probably be aware of:
1) Blogger Of The Year
The TES awards now have an award for “Blogger Of The Year”. The voting is all done by a panel of judges, so don’t worry, I’m not begging for support. Any practising teacher who blogs (please remember this, don’t waste time nominating those who are who not eligible) could be nominated and I’m trying to ensure that all the best blogs are put forward for consideration. Fortunately, you can nominate yourself, and I’m led to believe this won’t count against you. However, there is a real risk that some great blogs could be missed, so please, please help with nominating. The deadline is
tomorrow at midnight, Sunday 8th March, so time is short.

They are probably not even thinking about getting themselves nominated. So, if you can nominate any of the following, or talk them into nominating themselves, please do so and let everyone know in the comments below once they are nominated (or if you have already nominated them):
- Esse Quam Videri
- Learning from my mistakes: an English teacher’s blog
- Reading All the Books a blog by Jo Facer
- TDRE Boss Blog
- To boldly go…

Finally, if you write a blog but I haven’t mentioned you above, please don’t take it personally, I have probably just assumed that you can get yourself nominated without my help. If you are having difficulties, please ask for help in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do.
2) Battle Of Ideas Panel discussion.
